This match had everything - 5 hours, 5 sets, went the distance, 2:1 errors to winners, DF > aces...

What a ridiculous and disastrous clownfest Although despite the horrendous pushing, there was some remarkable physical rallies and several other hilarious moments littered throughout the match.

Finished watching it just then. Three words: Not worth it.

To be completely honest, I stopped watching tennis after 2-0 sets for Simon, went to take a shower, had some breakfast, watched the entire Lance Armstrong interview, browsed around on the internet, then turned on the TV having completely forgotten about Monfils-Simon and saw this match was still going on somewhere in the fifth

Despite mostly negative reactions, everybody knows this match was actually entertaining in some way. Otherwise we wouldn´t watch it.

Clownfils though... My god man, he faced 110kmh serves and simply returned them mid court... I'm not saying he didn't put himself out there but really he could and should have won this game. Terrible terrible match from him.

Gilles you are now my man!
Simon did this last major when he was injured against fish. He couldn't move his arms over his head to serve really- his serves were basically half their normals speed but he took Fish to 4 close sets somehow. He's a warrior.
